Life gets in the way of taking time just for ourselves, no one gets that more than a fellow mom of three. I had the absolute pleasure of photographing Ms. J, a single mom of 3 and a successful professional business owner.
There is something a bit exciting and daring about having your photos taken in your undies. It is, perhaps, a once in a lifetime event, a decadent experience that I wish for every woman. For me there is nothing quite like the experience of getting to witness the revelation of a woman as she arrives at her own beauty and loves what she sees.
...She was stunning and gracious. Her beauty radiated from deep inside her and I was transfixed. Looking into her eyes as I clicked the shutter I could feel how powerful the moment was for both of us. Still to this day I think about our time together; it was life changing, empowering and liberating. It was the birth of a fire in me that has not gone out and I hope never will...
I wanted to capture my body and essence as it exists right now, a sort of farewell package to the last chapter of my life. I wanted an amazing photographer and artist with visions, enthusiasm and flare to help me bring this side out ~ I was lucky enough to find Mel. After my initial consult, I was convinced that the boudoir experience was partly for the man in my life ~ it didn't take me long to realize that it was entirely for me.
